Message from the President/CEO, Annette Schnabel

We are lucky in healthcare to be invited into people’s lives. While we do not always know the challenges each person is facing, by demonstrating genuine concern for each person, we can give them the opportunity to feel blessed on their life journey.

Perry is committed to focusing on our communities’ future health. We encourage you to peruse our website as your health resource during your journey. We wish all our community members a healthy and happy 2019!

Falls are common among adults aged 65 and older.  They are a serious threat to health and well-being, resulting in severe injuries, even death.  They may land you in a hospital or a long term care facility and are expensive to treat.  Falls are not a "normal" part of the aging process.  They are predictable and preventable.   Come to our next meeting to discuss ways to prevent falls and how to fall safely.
